MADISON – Today, Democratic members of the Assembly Committee on Campaigns & Elections responded to claims from Speaker Robin Vos regarding Wisconsin’s November 2020 election:
“After unofficial results, county canvasses, county recounts, and tabulation audits have all shown that Wisconsin election officials acted with integrity and dedication at every step of the election process, Speaker Vos is now questioning the ethics of our public servants.
“If hearings around the country are any indication, the upcoming hearing on state election procedures will be a forum for debunked conspiracies and outright lies. It is beyond time for the Speaker and his party to accept that President Trump lost Wisconsin and lost the Presidential election. Their attempts to cast doubt on that legal result are serving only to further undermine our democratic institutions. Election officials in Wisconsin have demonstrated time and time again that they acted legally and ethically when administering this election.
“When the Speaker first floated his idea for this sham hearing almost one month ago, it was irresponsible, unnecessary, and unfounded. Now that the results have been scrutinized and confirmed again and again, this cynical attempt to undermine the will of the people is shameful.”
